ABC is reporting that an Israeli soldier killed a “Palestinian Cabinet Minister.”  Lebanese News refers to it as “Israeli barbarism.”  Abbas says, “we cannot sit idle and silent.”

We need to speak truth when mainstream media spreads lies:
David Lankari & Boaz Lehav -- two of the innocents murdered by Abu Ein.

David Lankari & Boaz Lehav — two of the innocents murdered by Abu Ein.

First of all, the man who died was a convicted murderer, named Abu Ein, who had been given a life sentence for killing two unarmed teenagers because they were Jewish.  He was in jail, first in the USA and then in Israel for the two murders.  This was in the 1980’s.  He got out when Arabs kidnapped some Jews and traded them.

Second, the cause of his death is unclear.  He was certainly grabbed by a soldier while tear gas exploded nearby, but the 55 year-old terrorist had diabetes and chronic high blood pressure, and he clutched at his own chest as he collapsed.  An investigation is needed to determine the cause of his collapse.
 
In the USA, Abu Ein could have gotten the death penalty; but Israel, unlike the USA, thinks it’s barbaric.  (Remember it was once barbaric here, until the Supreme Court brought it back.  Like magic, no longer cruel or unusual for the state to kill people.  Hmm…)
